This is the conclusion of my second 6 part series of my new Beauty Army Kit* where I review each of my new samples and their relative value.
Today I’m going to share my opinion of the MyFace Cosmetics Blingtone Eyeshadow in Bellbottom Blues. I picked this as one of my 6 samples (out of my nine options) from the new Beauty Sample Kit, Beauty Army. Since I had gotten one in the last kit SP”ICE”Y I basically knew what I was in for but I was still excited – even though this was a color I didn’t expect to be able to use very much.
Lets start with the packaging. it was a clear plastic case. The packaging is not all that amazing, but it is good enough for its purpose. Now lets compare similar priced product’s packaging, Urban decay has the cute Subway Token, Too Faced has the cute flowers, The Balm has cute tins, and Lancome has the slider tops, this product’s packaging is ok, but not up to those standards.
What about the important part, the product?
From my last experience I learned that it is best to use it either wet or with a finger over primer so I went straight after that application method. I told some ladies on Beauty Army’s facebook page who were looking for a more adult way to wear such a vibrant color that they should use it as a thick eyeliner and then put some black liner over it in a thinner line. It looks lovely this way, but it didn’t photograph well, so in my photo I’ve done a full eye look (I used some colors from one of my urban decay palettes too, but 90% of this look it the MyFace Bellbottom Blues).
This color was just as beautiful as it looks, with a nice royal blue and loads of glitter. I felt like a mermaid. Wearing it this way is far too dramatic for my day to day wear, but it would be fun for a glamorous evening out.
Now that I’ve gotten used to these eyeshadows I have started liking them a lot more. I would still take an Urban Decay to this any day of the week, but I’m not going to turn one of these lovelies down.
